My story “Stuck” has finally come out on The Wicked Library and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it if I tried. The story originally came out in 2014 through Sanitarium Magazine but was accepted into the sixth season of the podcast earlier this year. I’d only discovered them in their fourth season, when Nelson W. Pyles was still the host, and I nearly passed out when I got the letter saying my short story had been accepted into the newest season.
This season welcomed the show’s new and extremely talented host, Dan Foytik, and I can’t thank this man enough for what he’s done with my story. He brought it to life in a way I could never have hoped for, let alone have imagined, and he’s left me in complete awe.
He made my characters come to life, he turned the nightmare I tried to capture on paper into a reality, and he asked such insightful and thought provoking questions during the interview. He did such a phenomenal job with my story and I can’t wait to see The Wicked Library grow under his direction.
The artwork for my episode was done by Jon Towers and it’s absolutely incredible! He brought one of the story’s scariest moments- in my opinion- to life through his art and added some wonderfully clever details to the background of the image. He may have also immortalized my fear of cats, which is pretty awesome (the illustration, not the fear of cats).
Anyways, all of this is to say that my story, “Stuck,” is finally out and I can’t wait for you guys to go listen to it! The Wicked Library did an amazing job and I couldn’t be happier or more proud of how it turned out.
Thanks guys! <3
